Sixty-five-year-old Ms. Yang Xiaoping lived at 132 Liyuchi, in the Jiangbei District of Chongqing. She began practicing Falun Dafa in May 1994, and had visited each of the Chongqing counties, districts, mountain areas and surrounding countryside to spread Falun Dafa and distribute truth-clarification materials. After July 20, 1999, the Guanyinqiao Substation Police (Jiangbei District jurisdiction) often harassed her at her home, tried to force her to abandon Falun Dafa and forbade her from doing the exercises. Ms. Yang was severely tortured, both mentally and physically, all because she firmly held to her belief. Ms. Yang Xiaoping died on October 10, 1999.
